Hockey Canada announced Wednesday that Ryan Jankowski will replace Kevin Prendergast as the head scout of the men's Program of Excellence.

As head scout, Jankowski, 38, will be responsible for all player evaluation and recruitment for Canada's National Junior Team and National men's Under-18 Team development and selection camps, as well as evaluations with the under-17 program.

Jankowski spent the last three seasons as an amateur scout with the Montreal Canadiens after working five seasons as the assistant general manager with the New York Islanders.

The native of Calgary, Alberta, also served as chief European scout for the Islanders from 2003 to 2006.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
